a drawer of unopened letters

Monday, July 25, 2011 0
We think too good of ourselves.
We thought we know everything.
We are too proud of ourselves.
Or maybe we are too broken inside that we deny everything else around.

Sometimes we take small things for granted.
We left a tiny hole uncovered.
Hoping nobody would ever notice it.
We ignored minute drops of water coming out of an old loose pipe.
Denying any significant effect from these drops.
We thought we’ve already taken everything needed into our account.
But maybe,
There could be a drawer somewhere we’re unaware of.
A drawer hidden long enough we couldn’t bother enough.
Maybe there is a secret drawer.
A drawer of unopened letters and birthday cards.

You might want to start refreshing your memory,
of every single vertex you’ve cornered away.

The storm is coming,
but I don't mind.
People are dying,
I close my blinds.

when life gives you lemons, you do what?

There are no guarantees in life
Not for the present
Nor for the future

We admit that there will be times when you can't stop smiling.
And there are also times when you just don’t know how to put your emotions in place.
You’re swarmed with so many kinds of feelings.
You’re trapped in emotions.
You can feel them all over your body.
Infesting the way you live your life.
And suddenly they took over your body.
Dominating your brain.
Controlling your every single reaction.
Just like an infection.
It started very discreet you couldn’t even bother to think of.
And suddenly you’re all feverish and reddening.
If only you took control of the time it began.
Now you’re sunk.

It’s life.
There are ups and downs.
Just like when you’re sitting on a boat in the sea.
You can feel the ups and downs.
You are trying to enjoy the moments.
But every now and then, waves keep on coming over.
They keep on trying to knock you out of the boat.
You don’t think it would get serious.
You don’t want to spoil your time-out on the boat.
So you find a distraction.
You read a book.
Or maybe playing the games you downloaded on your iPod.
But when you realized that the waves are getting harsher.
That’s when you know.
You need something to hold on to.
Those distractions worked, but only for a short time.
Now you really need to face the waves.
What will you hold on to?
Did you prepare a back-up plan?

do you think I'm strange?

All I know is that I’m here
Don’t know for how long

like me

I was standing just a few meters from him on one side of the road.
Cars would come from my right side so I would see him anyway.
The road was clear; free from cars.
He looked like he was waiting for the other side of the road calling for him.
He just stood there.
Looking for a certainty.
I wasn't sure if he wanted to cross the road or not.
I assumed his desire to reach the other side of the road.
But why didn't he cross the road while it was clear?
Maybe he too, thought the exact same thing about me.

unlike me
do you think I'm strange?
